Question: sore red bump around the vagina........and worried!

 danceaddict08 - Thu Dec 22, 2005 12:31 am

About three months ago right after my period a bump showed up on the inside of my groin area. I've had it three times all ready and i always get one about a few days after the end of my periods. The first time i had one, i popped it and puss witha mixture came out. But now when i try to pop it nothing happens. It is very painful when i touch it. And no hair grows on it when it appears. BUT I HAVE NEVER HAD ANY SEXUAL CONTACT! I'm very scared, please help me.

First thing, please don't try to "pop" this again. Without proper procedure, you could just make it worse. You may try Warm Moist Compresses to the area which will help to ease discomfort and also help to "pop" this on it's own.
You may want to see your physician to see if you need to be on an antibiotic by mouth. You could have a boil, ingrown hair, or a number of other things. Just because something shows up in a "private" area, does not mean that it has to be sexually realted. Settle down and take care. Let us hear back from you.
